The Fox and Hounds is now closed but was never very good--expensive and mediocre. The location has re-opened as yet another fake Brit gastro-pub, whatever that might be...

Worst menu, trying way too hard to please everybody but really pleases nobody but the local drunkards. Would never return. Even if big signs out front announced "NEW MANAGEMENT" or "NEW OWNERS" or "NEW CHEF". Sucks and sucks big... Can't do business with a clown that thinks this is a place to meet. Maybe he thought he'd look better taking... More

Just got off the ferry and wanted to find a pub to eat at. This pub was recommended on trip advisor and I'm very please to say it was very good. Loved the way the pub was decorated and that they converted an old house to make a quaint little pub. The batter on the fish was a nice changed... More

My wife and I had eaten here once before, it was okay, but we thought we needed to try the restaurant out at least one more time. I had read the online menu and reviews before making the decision, and since the positive reviews definitely outweighed the negative, we decided to go there for Sunday dinner. I had my mind... More

Went here with my wife, based on local recommendations. Even though we knew the address, this place was easy to miss - unless you knew about the English red Telephone Box outside. From the front it just looks like a normal house, but there is a small car parking area at the back and a small outdoor patio area to... More

Went last night for dinner. What great food! We all had the Hunters Pie. When it came, in a timely fashion, it was huge, extremely hot and fantastic. Great flavour, even the mashed potatoes were tasty. They sell great British beer, we had Tetley's Cream Ale, just like home, wonderful. I believe you can take kids in, just like in... More

All the food at Fox and Hounds is delish, Never had a bad meal yet, You go upto the bar order your food and pay for it, and choose from a big black board, then they bring it to you.Just like England, I found the drinks to be pricey. I also enjoyed the Fibber Mcgees which is owned by the... More

When in Nanaimo I always come to F&H at least once, well poured Guinness and delicious pub food. Love the atmosphere.

The Fox & Hounds Pub is situated in a converted Victoria right in a residential neighborhood. The lengthy menu is listed on a chalkboard near the bar, where you place your order. You can sit anywhere you like, and the order is brought to you when ready. The atmosphere is conducive to a lot of conversation and laughs. I had... More

I have been going to this lovely little English Pub in Nanaimo for some time now. I am from New Zealand and have been in Canada on business for about a year. In that time as needs must I have dined on my own and always feel comfortable and welcome at the Fox and Hound. It's so warm and inviting,... More
